The children have been making use of the ropes in the garden at Hazel Avenue to swing from the trees. They worked out how to hold the ropes in order to lift their body off the ground. This skill develops upper body and core strength. Developing these muscles help children to be able to sit well, both on the floor and at a table, and further develops shoulder muscles which help children to hold a pencil for writing. (It’s also a lot of fun!!)
We have been looking at all the changes happening in the garden. The children collected leaves, sticks, apples, feathers… We used them to create a picture. There was lots of talk about size, colour and pattern.
We found this little chap in the garden at Hazel Avenue. He was hiding under a log but jumped out to see us. The children were fascinated to see how quickly he moved. Some of the children were able to hold him although he didn’t stay still for very long! We carefully placed him back under the log afterwards.
The children have been collecting apples in the Hazel Avenue garden. They sorted them and washed them. We are selling them for 10p each. The money will buy more things for us to grow. They are delicious!
The Café Fabulous catering company Garden Party BBQ at Hazel Avenue was a huge success. The event went really well with lots of families, good food and good weather!!

Our York Road site will be closed during the summer holidays due to refurbishment works in our Reception, Dining Hall, first floor and garden. The plans and designs are really exciting and we can’t wait!
Contractors will be on site from the 9th July but the Nursery will not be affected, although parents, carers and visitors will be ‘re-routed’ to avoid accessing the reception area. Please bear with us during these last few weeks of term. We will be up and running as usual from the start of next term.
Please note: we will not be running any events at York Road in the holidays, but will still have our timetable at Hazel Avenue during the summer period. The last Children’s Centre event at York Road until September will be the Well Baby Clinic on Fri 29th June.
If you have any queries, please don’t hesitate to get in touch by calling reception 01483 566589.

We had a great sports day with an amazing amount of families coming to join us. We played egg and spoon races, walking with a balloon between our knees, rolling a hoop down the hill, parachute games, bean bags onto a target, and riding bikes around a course.
Thank you to everyone who participated and of course donated money for a very good cause.
5th – 16th March: Eggs and then the chicks are coming to the nursery! Do pop in at the end of your child’s sessions if you would like to see them.
